How to furnish a conservatory or garden room

Jenson sofa


All of our furniture is built to last. Quality materials coupled with traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art fabrics – including Aquaclean, with unrivalled stain-resistance – mean each sofa, sofa bed, snuggler, occasional chair, headboard, footstool and upholstered dining chair we sell is designed to look good for years.

  • Turn the cushions on sofas and chairs regularly so they wear evenly.
  • Don't perch on the arms – this will weaken them.
  • If you are sharing your home with pets, choose washable or Aquaclean fabrics and consider loose covers.

Many of our sofas come in a selection of beautiful, durable Aquaclean fabrics. This modern miracle treatment process means most everyday stains, including biro, blood and red wine, can be simply cleaned off with water. Aquaclean fabrics are a practical choice for homes with pets – without compromising the look and style of your furniture.

Aquaclean Fabrics 


Most outdoor fabrics are resistant to sunlight and mildew, but should not be left outside for long periods and should always be brought in to dry if they get soaked.

We sell furniture covers for outdoor dining and seating sets, plus cocoons. Click on the individual product on our website to order. And if you can't see what you're looking for, call us on 01886 884665.
